OpenFOAM Essential Training

Numerical approach is currently playing a vital role in the Research and Development of any field. It has also broadened the ideologies by easing the testing. Numerous solvers are available do the analysis in a time span and effort much less than it takes to test a prototype experimentally. OpenFOAM is a C++ toolbox for the development of customized numerical solvers. It began dominating the numerical world by its flexibility, power and open availability. OpenFOAM includes flexible physical modeling codes to deliver fast, accurate results across the widest range of CFD and multiphysics applications. In this course you will learn basic meshing, converting mesh, case setup, assigning physical conditions, choosing solver, schemes, solving in series and parallel, extracting results.

Topics include:

  • Introduction to OpenFOAM
  • Basic meshing
  • Visualizing mesh
  • Case setup
  • Steady and transient analysis
  • Static and dynamic analysis
  • Assigning Boundary conditions
  • Solvers and schemes
  • Series and parallel solving
  • Running case
  • Viewing and plotting results in paraview

The trainer has enough knowledge in CFD and OpenFoam, with passive teaching attitude, positive personal interaction skills. The content of the training includes the introduction of the OpenFoam, examples, questions, and answers.

Installing OpenFoam is essential before attending the class. (Posted on 7/3/2017)
